163 Glamor Photos
The brightest stars of the 1950s live on in this wonderful, black-and-white gallery of publicity shots. Includes 114 major stars in their Hollywood heyday: Marlon Brando, James Dean, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Kirk Douglas, William Holden, and dozens more. Also includes stills for A Streetcar Named Desire, The Misfits, and many more.
This book provides the basis for hours of reminiscing with the film buff in your life. These memorable photographs of iconic stars of the silver screen will inspire hours of conversation. Rent some of their movies: an old movie who's plot is known and remembered (and more often simple) is better than a new movie who's plot can be convoluted and confusing.
Reminiscing and reminiscence therapy involve reaching the memories that reside in these still viable regions of the brain. There are many ways to encourage these memories, and you should. They can be comforting, even therapeutic. A study published in the June 2007 issue of Geriatrics and Gerontology International concluded that a reminiscence group program was an effective way to enhance the cognitive capacity of people with Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia as well as their ability to participate in normal activities of daily living. A summary of existing data, including studies published in professional journals, and interviews with specialists, concluded that the general mood and cognition improved in subjects with dementia who participated in some form of reminiscence therapy.
The activity should be enjoyable and nonthreatening. Never try to force the conversation, but you may have to lead it by making suggestions, like, "Do you remember what you were doing when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon?" Read more about reminiscing and reminiscence therapy at our website.
